My experience with Jim and Son's Transmission was awesome.
Robert Gingerich of Minerva Ohio
"My experience with Jim and Son's Transmission was awesome. It was an absolute pleasure dealing with Wayne and Amber. In two days the transmission in my 2007 Chevrolet 3500 was rebuilt and it was back on the road. On a scale of 1 to 10, I rate this business a 10."
THANKS GUYS for saving me another car payment and giving new life AND VALUE to my CRV!

Heath Katy & Nolan Taylor of Cuyahoga Falls Ohio
"Thank you for the resurrection of my Honda CRV. The transmission went out on it and after getting an estimate from another garage I had it brought into Jim & Sons. They towed the car, diagnosed the problem, gave me an estimate and even had it towed back to my house. At first we were going to just sell it as the cost was hard to swallow for a 2001 with 175K miles BUT with their estimate was a comment that the rest of the car was in very good shape and would last as long as the transmission. After deciding on the fix they towed it back to the shop - FREE OF CHARGE - and advised me of the updated estimate after then got into it. The fixed it in record time and even fixed a couple of other issues for the cost of the parts only. The car runs and handles like new. THANKS GUYS for saving me another car payment and giving new life AND VALUE to my CRV!"
Over all I must say that I am very thankful for their service and their professionalism and I feel like they cherish their customers and are passionate about doing a good job.
Lionel Nwike of Wadsworth Ohio
"Came in to Jim & Son's per referral to fix my broken manual transmission. I was aware that it would not be cheap to get it replaced so initially I asked for an estimate. Dan and Max accurately quoted the job and answered all the questions I had. I dropped of my car and was given a rental for for the week that they needed to complete the work. In the end Max was able to rebuild my transmission which saved me some money and I was given a good warranty with job. I came back once again to change transmission fluid, because it shifted a little unsmoothly in cold weather, which they gladly took care of. Over all I must say that I am very thankful for their service and their professionalism and I feel like they cherish their customers and are passionate about doing a good job. Thanks to the whole team and to Beverly in front for your help. I strongly recommend Jim & Son's for any future customer."
Their pricing was MORE than reasonable. Hopefully I will not need their wonderful service on a routine basis but if I do, I will not hesitate to return to them.
Barb Knupp of Akron Ohio
"Normally when one hears the word "transmission" it is asscociated with the phrase "national debt"! This is certainly NOT the case with Jim and Sons. I found them to be very friendly, honest and accommodating in our dealing. Their pricing was MORE than reasonable. Hopefully I will not need their wonderful service on a routine basis but if I do, I will not hesitate to return to them. Thanks guys!!!"

Bob Doherty of Akron Ohio
"Thank you for your excellent work you did stopping the transmission on my car from leaking fluid. I appreciate the manner in which you took my car in, inspected it and repaired it. I would also like to say thanks for telling me the charges for your work which were 100% less than I had anticipated. I'm wishing that you will continue to have the best of success in your business.

Dean Stevens of Diamond Ohio
"Hi! My name is Dean Stevens, and I cant tell you how pleased I am with Jim and Sons Transmission! I have had my wifes Beetle to the dealer, the biggest and most well known transmission shop in the youngstown area, and twice to a foreign car shop in streetsboro! After 8 months of people telling us nothing was wrong( car slamming into gears up and downshifting) we got lucky and found jim and sons! No I did not need a new transmission like i was told by a vw guru, i just needed a valvebody in which was very reasonable!

Stephene Van Natta of Canton Ohio
"After diagnostics were done at my regular auto shop, I was told it was necessary for my Jeep to be serviced by a transmission shop. After calling me, they arranged everything. I was assured I would be pleased with Jim & Sons Transmission in North Canton. 'Wayne" called to explain there were several electronic issues in my transmission. Wayne called me 2 more times with updates and was very pleasant & knowledgeable. Repairs were made and my Jeep was ready to go the next day. Nobody likes to know their vehicle needs transmission work but this is definitely the place to go! Thank you Wayne & staff.e"

Would you like to know what is wrong with Jim and Sons? Absolutely nothing!
Jeffrey Coleman of Akron Ohio
"Would you like to know what is wrong with Jim and Sons? Absolutely nothing! For the past two weeks I have had a horrible squealing noise coming from underneath my truck. A friend looked at it, told me it was the u-joints and offered to fix it for me. While I did appreciate his generosity, the squealing continued after his attempt. I then took my truck to a large chain auto service center to get their opinion and an estimate. Their diagnosis was also the u-joints and their estimate was through the roof. I asked another friend if he knew of an honest affordable place that I could take my vehicle. Before I could finish asking he blurted out "Jim and Sons". I set up an appointment to have my truck looked at the next day. Beverly and Max were two people that I dealt with at Jim and Sons. I do not think I have ever had a more pleasant experience dealing with anyone not only in an Auto shop but also in any service industry as I had with those two. My truck was dropped off the following day. Beverly was nice enough to drive me back to work within minutes. A few hours later Max called to let me know that my truck was ready. Not only did they save me well over $200.00, they also fixed the u-joint that my friend installed incorrectly.I would recommend Jim and Sons in a heartbeat to anyone. Do yourself a favor and go see them. You will not regret it."
